  1. Fulltext. Vegetables, fruits, and carotenoids and the risk of cancer.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais


    Conference on antioxidant vitamins and B-carotene in disease prevention. London (GBR), 1989/10/02.

    Low intake of vegetables, fruits, and carotenoids is consistently associated with increased risk of lung cancer in both prospective and retrospective studies.

    In addition, low levels of bêta-carotene in serum or plasma are consistently associated with the subsequent development of lung cancer.

    The simplest explanation is that bêta-carotene is protective.

    Since retinol (preformed vitamin A) is not related in a similar manner to lung cancer risk, bêta-carotene appears to function through a mechanism that does not require conversion into vitamin A. However, the importance of other carotenoids and other constituents of vegetables and fruit has not been adequately explored.
